Sophie's speech has really been improving this last month. The speech therapist and lots of practice are doing wonders. Now that I actually understand more of what she is trying to say, I am getting a huge kick out of her.
Two recent favorites:
1. The other morning, Bria (my early bird) got Sophie up before I (the resident insomniac/night owl) got out of bed. After playing for a bit, Sophia came into my room and pulled on my hand.
"Out. Bed. Mommy," she begged. Then she handed me my glasses, took my hand and said, "Mon. I hony"
I asked her if she would like me to get her some cereal and she very authoritatively answered, "No! Pahtates!"
I was so not in the mood to get up and make pancakes, but Bria offered to make her eggs and Sophie was fine with that. And I got to sleep a few minutes longer.
2. A few days ago Chloe and Sophia were sitting at the kitchen table coloring. Sophie had a little toy cat and was saying, "mow, mow" and moving it around as she simultaneously drew her pictures. Chloe started saying "meow" too, and apparently Sophia didn't like it very much, because the next thing I heard was, "DOH TOPY ME!" in the biggest, growliest voice that a little two year old could muster.
I'm still laughing about that one. It serves Bria and Chloe right for freaking out at each other over the whole copying business. I probably shouldn't think it's so hilarious, though. I certainly didn't when I was 8 and my little brothers always copied whatever I said.
